And this, friends, is how we find peace in food. Salute to a hero! 🌈

This is Andre Sauls the farmer who gave his pigs to the sanctuary after having a change of heart. He is telling me that he could not stand sending them to be slaughtered,that he had got to know them, named them. He realised he couldn't afford to keep them properly. He wants to create a large vegetable garden for his family and for all of the community, to feed those around him who are hungry. What an awakening, what a transformation, what a hero. Thank you Andre, for being the first, for starting something truly good.

Peace and love are synonymous. As is the heart and soul. In order to truly be able to love without limits, you need to love yourself first and foremost. You cannot honor the self whilst participating in the destruction of others either. So, on this day of romantic mindfulness - consider embracing true love by removing animals from your stomach and keeping them in your heart instead. 💘💘💘 we started the morning off with this delicious plantbased breakfast: made with , , & garnished with , and on 💙💚💛💜

Red, white or vegetarian sir?
By Trevor Bridge
Wine glass‘Bottle of wine, fruit of the vine’ as the song goes. Yes, we all know that wine is made from grapes and not meat. So what is vegetarian wine? Well, some wines are not suitable for vegetarians due to the use of animal-derived ingredients in their production.

‘Animal ingredients? In wine? How can that be?’ I hear many of you splutter into your glass.

Animal ingredients used in wine making are gelatin (made from cow’s or pig’s hooves and sinews), isinglass (extracted from the air bladders of fish), chitosan (derived from the shells of crustaceans), albumin (egg whites), and casein (from milk). The very thought of gelatin, isinglass and chitosin would be a real turn off for vegetarians. Some might be OK with albumin and casein; vegans would certainly not be. It is claimed that animal products like isinglass or gelatine do not remain in the finished wine, but it’s the principle that counts.

Once upon a time, winemakers used animal blood, so at least things have moved on a bit – it was declared illegal in Europe in the aftermath of the BSE (mad cow disease) outbreak.

So why put animal products in wine?

These ingredients are used in the ‘fining’ or filtration process to help remove solids such as grape skins, stems, pips and yeast. The agent is added to the wine. It then spreads out, like a net, and sinks to the bottom dragging the ‘gunk’ down with it. The clear wine is then racked off, leaving the fining agent and sediment behind.

The good news is it is not necessary to use animal ingredients in fining – bentonite (a form of clay) and kaolin are two minerals used for fining. Even better news – the vast majority of wines are fined with bentonite these days. Also, some winemakers filter their wine mechanically without the use of additives, whilst others use no finings at all, allowing time for the wine to settle naturally. These unfined and unfiltered wines are becoming increasingly popular – some people argue that the less you do to a wine the better it will taste.

One thing worth remembering is that organic wine is not necessarily vegetarian. It often is, but not always, so make sure before you buy.
